milestones


Our darling little Maxidoodle is a challenge like we've never faced. It would be hard to count how many times a day I must force myself to take a deep breath before dealing with his latest antic. We are constantly saying that he is incredibly blessed to be so cute and so funny.

But for all his trouble-making prowess, his newfound belligerence, and his lack of self-control, he is still one of the sweetest little creatures on the face of the earth. He's affectionate, and happy, and just plain adorable. And it is a wonderful gift to see the world through his 4-year-old eyes from time to time.

He put the biggest smiles on our faces the other day. Rich was talking with him about starting kindergarten in the fall. He was telling Max that he would still be 4-years-old when he started, but he would turn 5 pretty soon after that. You could see something dawned on him as his eyes grew large. "That's a whole hand!" he said in something that resembled awe.

Hee hee! Oh my, he IS adorable! I fear that's the reason my children get away with as much as they do, too :-)
